How many young musicians are here?

I notice as I read these threads, that there are a lot of young people here (Including myself. Going to be 18 next month. whoo hoo!!!!). So how many of us young people (kids and young adults under 21) hang out here at the Session?

Re: How many young musicians are here?

I think this discussion should be deleted. If the younguns discover their strength, they might want to put some of us in musical "rest camps".

Re: How many young musicians are here?

I’m 23. Thought that was still young, but I guess I was wrong. Apparently once you can drink here in the States, you are already old. Bummer.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

S.McMullen - you should have said. If it’s "dudes" you want to form a band with, go to Edinburgh, not Glasgow. 🙂

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Re: How many young musicians are here?

"But I play like I’m 30!"
That’s not saying much. There’s lots of 30 year-olds who can’t play for s**te. (Not looking at anyone in particular!)

I’m 17, and I play like it!

Re: How many young musicians are here?

"There’s lots of 30 year-olds who can’t play for s**te."
Amen to that! lol 😛
This is really neat how many young people there arehere at the Session! 🙂 We shall rule and dominate! *maniacal laughter while twisting moustache*

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Oh god not another one of these threads. Oo I’m 18, oo, I’m 15, well *I’m* 14, and *I’m* 19, blah blah blah so the feck what who cares how old you are, say something interesting about the music.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

So, Dow, how old are you?
(Don’t worry, you don’t HAVE to answer….)

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Dow- Zip it. I don’t mean to be rude, but we’re just a bunch of musicians here who just want to connect with others our own age. It feels good that you’re not the only one here admist a bunch of adults. To make you feel better, I’ll ask a music question.
How did you guys get interested in "the music"? Generally speaking, regular public schools or private teachers don’t usually use ITM as part of the lesson, I know there are many kids who would much rather listen to rock or pop than listen to ITM. As for me, my family bought some celtic CDs, and I fell in love with the music. Where I live, this kind of music is part of our culture, so there are some sort of workshops going on. I joined some of them, and my music teacher at the time would help me learn the pieces I had to memorize (he was also a big fan of the music too). It’s been my favorite style to play for about 7 years now. Okay, that’s my story. How about yours?

Sara

Re: How many young musicians are here?

That’s great Sara, that you want to connect with other like-minded people of your own age, but how do you connect with someone by saying "hi I’m 17". Also, excuse me, what about us? What about people who aren’t teenagers? Why exclude them just on the basis of age? I’ve made contacts of all ages on this board through talking about the music, some of whom have become really good friends who I’m prepared to make an international call to and chat for 2 or 3 hours. My youngest friend on the board is just 6 months old and we talk every week. He can’t talk back yet but he still manages to dance to the music and say more interesting stuff that any of you teenagers ever could. Other friends are wrinkly and old but it doesn’t stop me from talking to them just because of their age. Just get over yourself. God, the youth of today. You watch far too much telly and play far too many video games, and the stupid slang you use really annoys me. Ok I’ll zip it now.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Dow- You have mail.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Dow… they’re giving away free beer on the how many oldies thread.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

I’ve grown old, but I refuse to grow up….

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Awww, poor Dow, he’s feeling old…
Don’t worry, there’s always reincarnation to look forward to!!

Re: How many young musicians are here?

That’s ok as long as I don’t come back as a Folkworks student.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

You know you’re not young any more when you stop caring about how many other people are your age. I mean, the last thing that would ever cross my mind would be to start asking "how many people here are 42?" Yeah, cool, we’re 42, we rock!

Sorry, celtic lass, I don’t mean to make fun, but I guess I’ve grown old and jaded. I do remember when I was 17 and first fell in love with this music and it always seemed odd to me that I was one of the very few under-age people at the festivals and the concerts. Then again, I thought it was cool in a way, because I had the opportunity to talk to people with so much more experience than I had, and I learned a lot.

And don’t worry about Dow. You’ll feel the same way he does in about 30 years, you’ll see.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Wait a minute Sara - you can’t be as young as you say you are if you have a moustache…

Re: How many young musicians are here?

I’m feeling really old. Although I remeber when I was a teenager and anyone who ever says things like "the Teenage years are the best years of your life" are lying….
We get to, Travel the world, drink, play until dawn whenever we feel like it and get paid loads of money to work wheras you have to go to school and all you get is homework.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

OK, now Dow has blown it. The teenies were prepared to negotiate, but he’s pushed them over the edge. Its every geezer for him/herself.

Re: How many young musicians are here?

I don’t care. I’ll sit down and play with, or discuss music with anyone. Their age is entirely irrelevant.

Too old to stand up, eh Kenny?

Absolutely - but you can have my seat, Conan. Always willing to give it up to a piano-accordion player 🙂

Now that would make you popular with me but not with anyone else!

Re: How many young musicians are here?

What I quite like about this site is the way old discussions resurface. If you didn’t have an opinion on a topic first time around, you certainly will by the fifth.

How many young people are here?

I’m nearly 13 and I just wanted to know how many young people are here? Thanks! 🙂

ROFLMBO!
To all of you "geezers", I have absolutely no problem having friends that are a lot older than me. In fact, almost all my friends are older than me, and the few friends that I have that are my age don’t have a passion for "the music" like I do. So I was just trying to find others my age who enjoy the same music as I do. My apololgies if we were making you guys feel old. 😛

Re: How many young musicians are here?

Hey Sara!

Im (just) 19- god i feel sooooo old!!!! Nah no1 my age seems to really have that much interest in ITM like me- my flute was referred to as a "recorder" the other day 🙁 (I think she was just trying to wind me up tho!) Yay so happy Im not on my own! oh and by the way- i think a moustache is the ultimate accessory for anyone interested in world domination lol.

Anyone in the Leicester area????
